Doing some more reading over the last few days I've moved away from the portable PA / complete set type columns to the larger, more standalone models with separate subs such as dB Ingenia, RCF NX L24, JBL CBT & FBT Vertus.

Having never worked with these column types before, how would they compare to traditional point source boxes, such as Yamaha DXR12s? They obviously have smaller woofers, although more of them. Anyway, I'd really appreciate your thoughts.

Yamaha and other direct radiating designs will have zero pattern control or close to it below the crossover point, where the HF horn is out of the picture.   Thatís a bad thing in an acoustically challenged space.

Pictures and proposed seating layout of the room would help greatly.

Hi Lindsay. Thanks for your input. I think the key questions are how the various column  / tall thin speakers compare to each other, as well as to more traditional point source speakers.

If this is for an installation - you just completely missed the most critical detail.  How a speaker 'sounds' is low on the list compared to dispersion pattern and pattern control.

How does the dispersion pattern and pattern control of a modern column speaker (eg dB Ingenia 1T) compare to a traditional point source speaker?

Yeah, that seems my only option. Was hoping the forum would help narrow the field, but I guess I'll have to try source as many models as I can in the new year.

You already have most of what you need to know courtesy of this forum but Iím not sure you realize it.

Find your local distributors for demos.
